Relive the Edwardian era with a heritage break in Brighton and a visit to the delightful Preston Manor.
The manor house belonged to the Stanford family for over 200 years and the Edwardian atmosphere has been preserved. Fans of Downton Abbey will enjoy stepping back in time to experience life both upstairs and downstairs from the grand reception rooms to the servants’ quarters.
Preston Manor is rumoured to be one of the most haunted houses in Britain. The Cleves Room is central to this reputation, as it was during a seance here that the medium claimed she received messages from a nun who had been murdered as a result of jealousy between another nun and a monk.
Outside visitors can explore the pet cemetery and the beautiful walled garden. The Manor is next to Preston Park which is a great spot for picnics and is also home to the largest municipal rock garden in the country.
